"Grated lemon peel in the batter and on the icing of these soft cake-like cookies gives them their fresh citrus flavor. Betty Thompson of La Porte, Texas shares the recipe, which makes about three dozen of the tender treats."

The taste is delish! But the texture and consistency was way off, I stuck to the recipe EXACTLY and they are almost like pancakes instead of cookies.
